Gillian Wearing

I’m desperate
Throughout the past two decades, Gillian Wearing’s films, photographs and sculptures have investigated public personas and private lives. Since the beginning of her career, the artist has drawn from techniques of theater, reality television and fly-on-the-wall documentary-making to construct narratives that explore personal fantasies and confessions, individual traumas, cultural histories, and the role of the media.

Songs from the second floor
A man is standing in a subway car, his face dirty with soot. In his right hand he carries a plastic bag with documents, or rather, the charred leftovers of them. In a corridor a man is clinging desperately to the legs of the boss who just fired him. He is screaming: “I’ve been here for thirty years!” In a coffee shop someone is waiting for his father, who just burned his furniture company for insurance money.

New Age Demanded
“New Age Demanded” tries to send a strong message regarding the role of the artist, who in each era is called upon to offer something new, powerful and desperate. The artist, according to Rafman, has to represent the impossible: the true character of an epoch, but also its inevitable decline.
